Mobile, flexible and 100% safe in lead climbing with EPIC (Electronic Partner for Individual Climbing) – the first electronic belay partner. EPIC provides perfect protection at all times. Thanks to this innovative securing device, it is now possible to automatically secure a lead climber when working at heights. Battery-driven and low-weight, it can be transported easily by the worker, also to environments that are difficult to access. The EPIC can be installed easily and quickly onto a pylon or similar structures. The rope is placed around the pulley and the user can start climbing to his deployment spot. The securing is carried out automatically.
Additionally, the worker is always connected to the device by a remote control on his arm and herewith operates all functions of the EPIC. He can block the rope to start work or take a break and release it again. Furthermore the rope can always be pulled to keep it tight. At the end of the work, it is possible to abseil at a constant, gentle speed. The device has a redundant mechanical design to back up any electronic failure.
An additional huge advantage is EPIC’s raise of efficiency to up to 100%, as a second person is no longer required to belay the active worker. And instead of belaying, that colleague can carry out his own tasks. This does not only mean working more effectively, but also that the cost can be amortized within a very short period of time. As a supplementary advantage EPIC eliminates the human uncertainty factor and always guarantees 100% safety against falls. Combined with the especially for his device certified rope SUPER STATIC 10.5, descents of max. 218 yards and working at temperatures ranging from -4 to 140 degrees F (-20 to +60 degrees Celsius) are possible. The EPIC is certified according to EN341:2011/A.
